Riviera Maya, Q.R. — A formal announcement is expected today that will welcome DreamWorks into Mexico’s Riviera Maya as a permanent attraction.
The formal acknowledgment of the investment Master Plan Amikoo, will be made today in Mexico City by President Enrique Peña Nieto and Quintana Roo state governor, Carlos Joaquín González.
The mega-project consists of a large $300 USD million investment that is expected to draw more than 4 million additional visitors to the region each year. The project is part of an ambitious investment package for Quintana Roo that officials are hoping will solidify the confidence of national and foreign investors for the area, as well as the financial stability guaranteed by the state administration.
Highlights of the mega DreamWorks Studios Riviera Maya project will include the theme parks Dream Park and Thrill Park along with three hotels, Museum of Anthropology and Mayan Archeology and Amikoo Shopping Center.
DreamWorks intends to recreate their most popular characters including Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and The Penguins of Madagascar, allowing visitors to interact with them.
Dream Park will feature more than 30 themed rides and attractions within a gated building, while Thrill Park will feature a high-speed roller coaster, two 4D movie theater suites, three climbing playground areas and stages for entertainment shows.
The entire park will be within an enclosed building at Punta Maroma that will offer themed food courts and commercial shopping where visitors can buy DreamWorks souvenirs. The enclosed building concept will allow the park to operate all 365 days per year.
